The Summer School, Executive and International (SSEI) Programmes Unit is a highly successful and commercially driven team that delivers LSE’s open enrolment short courses

Job Description

 

  • The LSE Summer School is recognised as a global leader, and is one of the top two Summer School programmes in the world measured by student enrolments, attracting over 6,000 participants annually who study on the LSE campus over an intensive 12 week period.
  • The University of London International Programme (UoLIP) was the originator of distance learning more than a century ago. In excess of 20,000 students across nearly 40 countries are currently studying LSE designed degrees either through distance learning or accredited organisations. The programme is steeped in history, boasting numerous notable alumni including Nobel Prize winners and a number of world leaders.
  • The Unit is also responsible for executive education and postgraduate level courses teaching social science research methods.

 

To be successful in this position you will have excellent experience in digital communications, in particular email marketing, social media management and web content management. This is also a hands-on role that requires flexibility in delivering both print and digital collateral, in addition to assisting with the unit’s annual events roster.

 

The role will also liaise closely with the University of London International Academy staff (UoLIA) in order to build a stronger connection between UoLIP students studying on LSE programmes across the globe and the LSE itself, here in London. Promoting content and resources provided by the LSE learning technology team to students across the world is essential in aiding their learning journey and strengthening their sense of belonging with the LSE in London.

 

You will be creative, outgoing and a natural relationship builder. You will also be highly organised, an excellent communicator and possess the ability to multi-task across various projects simultaneously. The post holder will be exposed to a range of different audiences, from international undergraduate students through to senior level executives at multinational corporations. Previous experience of working in a face to face capacity with students or in a customer service environment is highly desirable, but not essential.

 

In addition to a good salary the benefits that come with this job include a defined benefits pension scheme, generous annual leave and excellent training and development opportunities.

 

For further information about the post, please see the how to apply document, job description and the person specification linked to in the advert on the LSE website.

 

 

This is a readvertisement, applicants who applied previously need not reapply.
